New stuff since last update:
Seems that many vendors are finding consumers are not tolerating high shipping costs. Thompson's
Computer Warehouse had $6.95 flat rate shipping the last time I checked. Buy.com usually has
several deals that will make shipping free. Search dealnews.com (link below) for those deals.
New stuff before last update:
Links to buy computer parts and software:
Pricewatch.com if you are looking to buy computer hardware.
Pricescan.com if you are looking to buy computer hardware.
Buy.com if you are looking to buy computer hardware.
Of the places that will be indexed by the top two links, I have purchased
from the following;
Thompsons Computer Warehouse
black lab micro
1st choice memory
I'm sure there are a couple others.
Most of the places above have bottom line pricing, and hit you hard with
shipping costs. It doesn't hurt to call for shipping charges. Outpost and
sometimes warehouse.com will offer free shipping, but their prices are
higher. Shipping on monitors is usually way too high. Multiwave sometimes
has difficulty getting their act together. outpost and warehouse have good
customer service. Krex, multiwave, blacklab, and others don't have toll
free customer service. My best recent experience with delivery, order
correctness, etc. was with allstar.
My favorite site (dealmac.com, link down below) has extended itself to just deals in general. I would really
checking out dealnews, if you are looking to buy anything.
Check out deal-mac, which has also recently added deal-pc.
